Mitch, so are you saying that ... Ritch

Are you saying that because a GABA receptor-specific med like Klonopin (and other benzos) kind of "fools" the synapses/receptors into "thinking" there is plenty of GABA around, that being fooled like this, the brain would then lower/stop GABA production?

I thought GABA acts to calm a person, so I thought that Klonopin and other benzos somehow created more GABA in the brain, but not according to what you said!

Maybe my confusion now is that I'm mistaken about what GABA does - do you know and if so, could you also explain it?

Thanks!
